In Rare Union, Documentary Finds Itself on NBC:

What makes the current documentary perhaps even more unusual is that it was purchased at the behest of Robert Wright, now chairman and chief executive of NBC Universal.

According to the filmmakers, after the first screening, on a snowy Friday afternoon, Mr. Wright came up to a producer of the movie, Dallas Brennan, introduced himself and gave her his card. The filmmakers said they did not fully grasp who the speaker was. The next day Mr. Wright came up to them again at a brunch and said he found the documentary so compelling that he wanted to put it on NBC.
